Pain is necessary, suffering is not.
“Pursue your passions, accept your struggle. Let your pain shape you, and love transform you.”
– Mirtha Michelle, Castro Mármol
Pain is a tool to be used and learned from. It is meant to help us. It assists in our growth, which makes it an important factor in life. We just need to remember this, and pain itself, as well as letting go after the experience, won’t be an issue.
Suffering, on the other hand, is neither necessary or useful. Suffering begets extra negativity that we do not need. It is what causes us to hold on. Holding onto things, emotions, ideas, and people we do not need and that do not serve us is unnecessary. We do not have to suffer. Suffering is a self-inflicted mechanism that we have 100% control over.
Accept what you can not change, and learn to change what you can. Always be on the learning curve. Pain is your ally.
Feel and let go. Attach yourself to nothing except Love.
